While always being passionate about music, Benjamin’s interest in technology and science led him to the Universities of Kassel and Hamburg. At the latter he graduated with a Master of Science degree in physics. After several years of working in a company and as a trainee teacher in high school, Benjamin decided to focus on music and moved to the United States to study music production at the Los Angeles College of Music (LACM).
Being taught by industry professionals Andre Knecht (Warner Bros.), Mark Browne (Melissa Etheridge, Dixie Chicks) and Andrew “Mudrock” Murdock (Godsmack, Alice Cooper, Avenged Sevenfold), Benjamin started producing, recording and mixing numerous albums, EPs and Singles with international bands and artists as well as performing and recording as a studio keyboardist.
After graduation Benjamin joined the faculty of LACM and taught Pro Tools classes, maintained LACM’s extensive computer facilities, engineered for one of LACM’s recording studios and assisted film composer Martin Davich (ER, Trinity, Beverly Hills 90210).
After five years in LA, Benjamin moved back to Germany focusing on writing library music. His music has been used in movies and TV shows like HBO’s “Westworld”, CBS’ “Inside College Basketball” and “Where The Scary Things Are”.
Benjamin also founded borth audio, a company creating sample-based instruments for Native Instruments’ Kontakt.
